With the many options available nowadays, the Houston Cosmetic Dentistry Orthodontics team can help you maintain your appearance while still wearing braces.
Traditional braces realign your teeth by using pressure, explains the ADA. The brackets nowadays are smaller and less noticeable than in previous years. During a series of appointments while wearing your traditional braces, the orthodontist will gradually tighten the wire as the braces gradually straighten your teeth.
Lingual braces are different from traditional braces in that the orthodontist places the brackets and wires on the inside of your teeth, rather than the outside like in traditional braces.
Ceramic braces, another modern-day improvement, are the same color as your natural teeth, making them less noticeable than traditional braces. Sometimes orthodontists use natural-colored wires, which makes ceramic braces even less noticeable.
Invisalign offers an alternative that allows you to eat and drink as you normally would without braces. The removable invisible aligners work without using brackets and wires. Nearly invisible, most people will not even realize that you wear aligners.
One thing that has not changed is the fact that you must take care of your oral health while wearing braces. You must also avoid certain foods, which the knowledgeable Houston Cosmetic Dentistry staff will discuss with you.
